Welcome to Reception!
The children in Reception have been busy this term learning all about Famous Artists. We have explored the work of Mondrian, Monet, Van Gogh and Matisse. It has been interesting to learn about the life of these artists and to try out different painting and collage techniques. We also had a visit from a local artist which inspired us into producing some amazing art work. Using natural objects to create art like the artist Andy Goldsworthy linked us to the story of 'The Gruffalo' which everyone has enjoyed. Children have brought in some lovely pictures that they have done at home.
Next term's topic is 'People Who Help Us' which will hopefully get us out and about with possible trips to the Fire Station and Lifeboat Station.

Stay and Play sessions
Stay and play sessions will be held once a term. It was lovely to see so many parents, siblings and grandparents join us last term so please keep attending. The children and staff really enjoy the sessions as we hope you do.
P.E. sessions take place on Friday mornings. Please could you ensure that your child has a full P.E. kit, consisting of a yellow t-shirt, black shorts and black plimsoles. All MUST be clearly named. The kit should remain in school during term time. Earrings must be removed before school on Friday by an adult.
Could you please ensure that your child has a pair of clearly named wellies in school. The children love to explore the school woods and they can be very muddy so wellies must be worn. This protects both their shoes and our carpets!
Extra crafts and baking
In Reception, we try to make learning fun, meaningful and interesting by incorporating extra arts and crafts and baking. We would therefore like to thank you for the voluntary contribution of 50 pence per week that parents have been bringing to school, which enables us to enrich children's learning further.
Thank you support for your continued support! We look forward to another busy term ahead.
Mrs Harris and Mrs Moore.
